The Bears have announced a hiring, as head coach Matt Nagy has brought in former NFL veteran Chris Jackson as a defensive assistant.

Jackson joins the Bears in his second stint with the club after previously assisting the Bears during training camp in 2018 in conjunction with the NFL’s Bill Walsh Diversity Coaching Fellowship.
